Mumbai, Jun 20 (UNI) The Prosecution has filed supplementary chargesheet against Brijesh Singh and his accomplice Virendra Rai, the prime accused in 1992 J J Shoot out case, in the designated TADA court here.

Special Public Prosecutor Rohini Salian said a supplementary chargesheet was filed against Singh and Rai before the TADA court Judge U D Mulla, on Wednesday last.

They were booked under several sections, including 452, 302 and 307 of Indian Penal Code and other sections of TADA act, Ms Salian said.

Brijesh Singh, alias Bhiru, who was a close aide of underworld don Dawood Ibrahim Kaskar, was declared as an absconding accused in the J J Hospital shootout case. Singh was arrested by the Delhi Police on January 23 this year, in an extortion case of 2007.

On September 12, 1992, some gangsters killed Shailesh Haldankar of Gawli gang, using an AK-47, who was admitted in the prison ward of the government run J J Hospital. Haldankar was allegedly involved in the murder of Dawood Ibrahim's brother-in-law Ibrahim Parkar.

Police had seized around 500 empty cartridges from the shootout spot. Several magazines and an AK-47 rifle were also seized by the police. Police had booked 31 people in this case, but some of them were killed in subsequent police encounters and gang wars.

The TADA court has already convicted three people -- Subhash Singh Thakur, Surya Rao and Shyamkumar Garikar in this case. Thakur was awarded death penalty, which was later converted into imprisonment till death, by the Supreme Court. Rao was sentenced to seven years of rigorous imprisonment and Garikar was sentenced to ten years of rigorous imprisonment that was confirmed by the apex court.
